Oh man. This week’s list of new iPhone and iPad games is a little overwhelming. There’s no shortage of choice here. In fact, the list is so full that I don’t really have room to keep rambling about it here.
Onwards and upwards to new adventures!
PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist
YouTube’s #1 personality (gaming or otherwise) gets his own game this week, and it’s a retro-platformer with plenty of cameos from other streaming celebs. Want to know how it plays before taking the plunge? Don’t worry — I’m sure everybody will have a video of their gameplay experience up before lunch.
Simogo are probably best known for their narrative adventure games like Device 6 and A Sailor’s Dream — but that’s not the only type of game they want to make. This week they launched a minimalist puzzler. Expect our review soon!
If you like Clash of Clans, but wish you had full control over your warriors, Dawn of Steel might just be the game for you. Plus it doesn’t hurt that you’ll be controlling great big butt-kicking mechs.
Safety is so overrated. The creators of Bridge Constructor are back, and they want you to use their toolset not to improve the world through structural engineering, but to compete bad ass stunts like a digital Tony Hawk.
Push-based storytelling returns in this sequel from Dave Justus and 3 Minute Games. Lifeline 2 doesn’t continue the story of the first, though, so you’ll be safe to jump right in if you somehow missed the original. This time you’ll be wrapped up in a tale of revenge.
Boomlagoon always manage to offer something neat that we’ve never seen before, even if the parts used to make it feel similar. Just check out their last game, Monsu, to see what we mean. Spirit Hunter is their latest, and offers their take on a CCG / RPG mix.
It doesn’t make headlines like it used to, but Big Blue Bubble’s My Singing Monsters series still has plenty of fans (my own children included). Today they’re giving their audience a second title to add in the rotation, and it’s one that takes players back to the early days of the cute musical creatures.
…and then pick up the second! As always, these games are set in the same universe but don’t necessarily require you to follow a narrative thread of any sort. So really, pick up whichever looks cooler to you first. They’re both bound to be great. Tin Man Games have suffered few flops.
